OpenStack Storage and the Future of the Storage Industry

It’s an increasingly open world, even in the storage industry. Major vendors such as RedHat and HP have joined the OpenStack project and it only continues to gain momentum. Does this amount to a revolution, a snooze, or something in between?

Join this 60 minute live roundtable as storage industry experts discuss the following questions:

*What are the implications of the OpenStack movement on the storage industry?
*What does it mean for IT decision makers right now and five years down the road?
*Will the future be open source, and how will vendors respond?

Moderator: Jeff Boles, Taneja Group

Is Object Storage Right For Your Organization?

Is object storage right for your organization? Many companies are asking this question as they seek out storage solutions that support vast unstructured data growth throughout their organizations. Object storage is ideal for large-scale unstructured data storage because it easily scales to several petabytes and beyond by simply adding storage nodes. Object storage also provides high fault tolerance, simplified storage management and hardware independence – core capabilities that are essential to cost-effectively manage large-scale storage environments. Add to this built-in support for geographically distributed environments and it’s easy to see why object storage solutions are the preferred storage approach for multiple use cases such as cloud-native applications, highly scalable file backup, secure enterprise collaboration, active archival, content repositories and increasingly cognitive computing workloads such as Big Data analytics.

To help you decide if object storage is right for your company and to help you understand how to apply various storage technologies, we have created a table below that positions object storage relative to block storage and file storage.

As the table shows, there are several factors that differentiate block, file and object storage. An easy way to think about the differences is the following; block storage is necessary for critical applications where storage performance is the key consideration, file storage is well-suited for highly scalable shared file systems and object storage is ideal when cloud-scale capacity and convenience as well as reliability and geographically distributed access are the major storage requirements.
